Starlight Kiss is an online slot game from Microgaming that is based on the theme of a traditional Victorian romance. The game features 5 reels and up to 30 paylines that are brought to life with a number of amorous symbols, including the two star-crossed lovers who constitute the game’s main characters.
The game includes both scatter and wild symbols, and bonus features include a free spins feature with a 2x multiplier on all wins, and an additional Romance bonus game that offers up to 3 picks of bonus prizes and multipliers of up to 10x the bonus prize value.
Graphics and Animations
Starlight Kiss is set in a romantic moonlit garden scene filled with roses. The reels and pay table are fringed with gold, and glowing gas lamps and golden carriage clocks sit atop the reels.
The reel symbols are vibrant and colourful, and feature a number of old-style romance-related symbols ranging from chocolate boxes and love letters to the lovers themselves, a young man proffering a long-stemmed red rose and a beautiful blonde-haired woman in a pink gown.
The reel symbols of the two lovers include the starlit backdrop of the game in their own backgrounds to perpetuate the romantic rose garden theme. Each symbol also has its own animations and sound effects that come into play when involved in a winning combination on the reels.
On the reels are a moonlit mansion, the rose-bearing young man, the blonde-haired woman, a love letter and a pink chocolate box.
There are also playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A, all of which have been styled in a swirling font and are surrounded by roses of various colours.
Wild Symbol and Jackpot Payout
The ‘Starlight Kiss’ logo serves as the game’s wild symbol, and can substitute all other symbols on the reels except for the scatter and bonus symbols.
The wild symbol is also the Starlight Kiss jackpot payout symbol, and 5 of these symbols appearing anywhere on an active payline will award players the game’s jackpot of 40,000 coins. There are also real money options much like the various bingo for money options available to players around the globe.
The moonlit mansion icon is Starlight Kiss’ scatter symbol, and 3 or more of these scatters landing anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins feature.
Free Spins Feature
When this feature is activated, players will be awarded 14 free spins, and any wins won while playing these free spins will be doubled.
The free spins can also be re-triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels during the feature.
Romance Bonus Game
The star-crossed lovers symbol acts as the game’s bonus symbol, which activates the Romance bonus game when appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4. Players will be redirected to a starlit garden in which a variety of objects are displayed, including an angel statue, 2 owls, a cluster of candles, a water fountain and a pair of white swans.
During this game, players may pick any 3 of 10 items which are displayed in the garden. Each item will award its own bonus prize, and some items may also award hearts, which fill the game’s Romance Meter to boost the multiplier value that applies to the bonus game’s wins. This multiplier may offer players up to 10x their wins when the Romance Meter has been filled.
